light sears
through the chinks of her arched,
regal back.

she is eyeless and smiling,
her ribs a gaunt prison,
her shoulders an altar
eaten by moss.

there is a kind of silent
dignity in her thighs,
the crown of her head—
in the way that she lies there

and will not be turned to dust.
at least, not yet

I love that passage: "there is a kind of silent / dignity in her thighs". Not only sensual, but fine poetry on its own merits. Nicely done!

Does anyone know she's alive?
Existing on her own, for herself..that's what I gathered.
I could be off...often am.

Interesting though..

I didn't intend any metaphor... just trying to paint a picture of what was in my mind at the time. :shrug:

Ah.. Well you're one for metaphors most often, so pardon my reaching for such. Might I ask if you're referring to yourself or if this is just a figment of imagination? I see that it could easily lack metaphor.. So don't be so umm...shruggy. Interpretation is certainly a personal thing.

indeed I am. I was just trying to describe a literal skeleton that I imagined.
